Written in January by Birtley Residents, Mary Mirecki, Iris Newton and Pat Scrase, the following poem captures the very essence of spring in the countryside.
A peaceful new day, with vibrant blue sky
I listen intently to birds chirp and cry
Many buds now bloom into life
Finally giving up the winter strife
The air is fresh, with a gentle breeze
Aeroplanes leave white trails with great ease
The trees branch out, with new leaves shiny green
And sweet smelling blossom, the best I’ve seen
The lambs hop and skip in fields of green grass
Whilst the odd clouds above arrive and then pass
We are now so thankful that spring is here
And we embrace this season with jolly good cheer!
Throwback to 'Burns Night' at Birtley House
Another day for intergenerational learning to take place
A group coffee morning for all to enjoy
Well rested and returning home...
A family affair at our annual Carol concert
Helping those in need to put food on the table at Christmas time
A rare opportunity has arisen to explore three different apartments within our house, leaving you spoiled for choice
An afternoon spent getting to know each other
